Stats To Go
By John Buglear
Routledge – 2000 – 288 pages
'Stats to Go' is a user-friendly guide for hospitality, leisure and tourism students who need to learn statistics and statistical techniques.
'Stats to go' is an ideal companion to hospitality, leisure and tourism studies as the breadth of coverage supports all taught numerical aspects of these types of course. Examples from hospitality, leisure and tourism organizations:
* licensed premises
* fast food outlets
* theme parks
and their environments are used to illustrate key issues of the text.
The area of quantitative methods is one which many students find unapproachable or daunting. With the use of a clear learning structure, and a user friendly, non-theoretical approach, Buglear has created a text which students and lecturers alike will find indispensable.
"A practical and user-friendly guide to the application of statistics."
Professor Peter Harris, Principal Lecturer, Financial Lecturer, Oxford Brookes University.
